Outer quote mark Vivid red. Simple and fresh aromas of flowers and red berries. Briary and zesty, delivering medium-bodied flavors of redcurrant and flint that finish with good length, polish and salinity. (ID) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of iris, exotic spice and plum lead the nose along with a whiff of tilled soil. The round, accessible palate offers juicy Marasca cherry, crushed strawberry, star anise and espresso alongside relaxed, slightly dusty tannins. Firm acidity keeps it light on its feet.
